1.1 Representing Data

The first lesson in this unit is Representation of Data, based around understanding the purpose of different graphs; bar, double bar, line, double line, picto, and circle graph. Having the students see exactly what is needed for each graph to be useful gave them a chance to see real life applications of graphs. The students got to do examples on the board before reading examples in the text than began to work on assignments. Overall the students seemed to grasp the concepts but I will spend time next class reviewing the answers to their assigned questions.
